Can’t help it

Last night driving home four of my kids suffered meltdowns. Their expectations had not been met and the 30 minute drive home felt like 3 hours.  Kicking, screaming, crying, and repeated phrases were experienced for the entire drive. Normally I would have experienced severe stress and eventually anger. However, this time I was able to put myself in their shoes and realize that they were having trouble dealing with the disappointment. Some how I felt peace and understanding.
